Ceramic Glaze Holiday Bling Collection

ceramic glaze holiday bling collection (2)

I think this is the last of this years' Holiday polish. Of course, now that I've said that something else will arrive and I'll be made a teller of non-truths (aka a liar.) Oh well, the Ceramic Glaze Holiday Bling Collection is a good one, and a fitting wrap up to the season. I am missing two shades from this collection, but read on for a look at 24 Karat, Santorini Blue, O Holly Night, Hong Kong Diva and Sexy Stiletto!

24 Karat is a soft, metallic, golden foil. The shade has some silver tones in it too, which I quite like as it gives it a less intense warm gold look but does have warmer gold flecks throughout. I love a foil polish, and this shade is pretty much perfect! An easy formula to apply- 2 coats.

Santorini Blue is a vivid medium-depth blue with a lit from within shimmer that really glows and mkes this shade a blue lovers dream. The shade is just a touch deeper in person than captured here. The formula was a bit thin, but it did build better than expected. Three coats.

O Holly Night is a medium-depth, teal kissed green with silver, glass fleck shimmer. The shimmer really makes this shade special, as it glows and catches the light beautifully. The formula is thin, but build well, although it still took three coats.

Hong Kong Diva is classic Holiday shade with it's cherry red jelly base packed with red and golden shimmer and glitter. The glitter seemed to be a little bit camera shy- regardless of lighting- but is super glitzy and sparkly in person. I thought I might need to add extra coats to cover VNL (not visible in person) but this formula is super pigmented and covered nicely with just two coats.

Sexy Stiletto is a deep, red-wine shade with a brown undertone that looks like it's a great option if you're already seeking Marsala shades. The shade looks like a cream, but the formula is more jelly like and as such has an incredible glossy shine. Three coats. Also, this shade pairs very nicely with 24 Karat as an accent- I'm wearing the pair right now!

Overall, I quite like the shades in this collection. They're not incredibly unique to the world of Holiday shades, but are all worthy additions to any stash. I'm not certain if Ceramic Glaze is currently available in the US, but can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. What do you think of these shades? Any you love?
